Shockwave

Gain a deeper understanding of how intravascular lithotripsy works and to code appropriately for both peripheral and coronary IVL procedures. We dig into coding and billing specifics for hospitals, ambulatory surgery centers and physicians—and also navigate transitional pass through (TPT) and New Technology Add-On Payment (NTAP). See what codes and updates have changed that your team should be implementing now.

Group of surgeons in operating room

Join us for an educational webinar to gain a better understanding of how to code for a variety of types of atrial fibrillation (Afib) and interventions to treat Afib. We’ll offer a special focus on epicardial surgical ablation, including effective ICD-10-PCS and CPT coding for hospital care teams. We’ll also share a variety of patient case examples and codes that your team can learn from and implement today.

Managing imaging volume overload

Radiology Associates of Venice and Englewood (RaVE) needed a storage-re up to support huge growth in imaging exams and image volume per exam, a growing and graying patient base and their remote and onsite radiologists having access to all images instantly. Here’s how they did it—and had the solution installed in less than a week.

Female Medical Research Scientist Working with Brain Scans

Houston Northwest Radiology Association and Memorial MRI and Diagnostic are two practices achieving radiologist workflow efficiency gains of 30% and 50%, respectively, since introducing cloud-based PACS. Productivity is up too, for radiologists, administrators and schedulers. Join us for an engaging webinar and live Q&A, as radiologist Dr. Muzammil Shafi and CEO Kim Tran discuss how radiology practices can become more nimble. 

Surgeons Operating On Patient

Join us to gain a deeper understanding of the landscape for physician reimbursement for cardiovascular and interventional procedures. We’ll offer a quick look at how CPT codes and RVUs are valued—and how physicians and leaders can proactively impact future rates.

Fujifilm Video Still

Fresh off its $1.6 billion acquisition of Hitachi’s diagnostic imaging business, one of the biggest business deals in radiology history, Fujifilm is excited to provide attendees at RSNA 2021 with a sneak peek of its vision of the future.

The trend of bringing technology to patients is making its mark with bedside MR in neuro ICUs and EDs. Bedside brain scans are helping to guide care team decision-making and significantly reduce risks for patients and staff—especially considering that one in four intrahospital critical patient transports results in an adverse event.1 Join our panel of clinical and financial experts as they review ongoing problems with critical care neuroimaging. They will offer solutions that can reduce ICU and ED length of stay and explore the impact of bedside MR imaging on avoiding adverse events and improving patient outcomes and health system revenue and operations. As the experts tell us, the benefits are clinical, operational, and financial.

Expert Panel 2020 Valvular Heart Disease Guidelines: Recommendations on Treatment, TAVR and Decision-making

Just-released valvular heart disease guidelines favor transcatheter interventions for the right patient and more shared decision-making among heart teams, physicians and severe aortic stenosis patients with an eye toward types of valves and approaches, and lifetime benefits and risks.

The 2020 ACC/AHA Heart Valve Disease Guidelines mark a change from the 2014 version and 2017 focused update and open a path to more frequent revisions going forward. The guidelines also offer more evidence and insight for physicians on patients 65-80 and people over 80 for whom transfemoral TAVR is now an option.

This panel of five leading experts who treat VHD unpacks the changes around evaluating and testing patients with severe AS, treating patients at comprehensive valve centers, utilizing anticoagulants and why less invasive procedures have replaced surgery for many patients.

Winter is Coming

Recent experiences and events have had profound effects on how healthcare is prioritized and delivered. As provider organizations rethink how to best prepare for an evolving reality, one critical access hospital in a California ski mountain town embraces imaging technologies that accelerate care, drive change, and offer them the flexibility to pivot on a dime.

physician burnout

Physician burnout is an epidemic we cannot ignore. We know that administrative demands, especially those involving electronic health record systems, are significant contributors. The good news is, strategies of both a high-touch and high-tech nature are demonstrating great results in the fight against physician burnout. If you work in healthcare and are looking for solutions to physician burnout, this virtual roundtable is for you.

Around the web

Validation and testing of all algorithms is needed to eliminate any biases in the data used to train the AI, according to Julius Bogdan, vice president and general manager of the HIMSS Digital Health Advisory Team for North America.

More than 120 medical societies have joined the AMA in a letter urging congressional leaders to enact long-term solutions to the systemic problems in the Medicare physician payment system and to address cuts that are going into effect in 2023.

Three medical journals are investigating possible manipulation of data in heart studies led by researchers from Temple University that found favorable health impacts of blood thinners.
